The Humber River Regional Hospital at Church and Jane is not known for its acumen, but this may set a new record for mush-headed moronicity. The hospital forgot to tell the cops that they were releasing an honest-to-god maniac whom the police had just brought in for assaulting one of their own.
Courtney Carter spat infected blood at an officer, tried to grab the officer’s gun, threatened his neighbours with a knife, and was charged with assault, threatening death, assaulting a police officer, and disarming a police officer. He was brought to the Church Street campus of the HRRH sometime after midnight, according to The Star.
The hospital released him, presumably with a brown bag full of cookies and a hug, without notifying the cops—even though he was, obviously, under arrest.
Happily, Carter is not from the Weston area; he was arrested near Black Creek Drive and Weston Road. The police describe him, in their neutral tones, as “extremely dangerous”. He is 5′ 8″, 141 pounds, with many tattoos and a frizzy afro. He should not, obviously, be approached.
